      We have moved to Discord   08/04/2016

      There has been a strong desire among the community to migrate to Discord for quite some time. As of today, our community will be using Discord and as a result, we will no longer be actively using our TeamSpeak Server.  The TeamSpeak server will temporarily stay active to help inform all of our move to Discord. Within the next couple of months, it will be shut down completely.  For a quick invite to our new Discord server, you can click here.

      vVv Gaming Presents: ADL Season 10!   08/12/2016

      TL;DR: Season 10 of the vVv Gaming LoL ADL begins Friday, August 19th @9pm EST/6pm PST! Discord Info              Just be on Discord at the check in time and have a level 30 with at least 16 champions to participate! ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ vVv Gaming has had a long history in competitive e-sports; and, while the LCS may be a long way off for the organization, we can still participate in semi-competitive LoL activities as a community. The ADL has, and will continue to be, our main way to achieve this. However, let’s be honest, the ADL has had a rough time over the past few seasons. This comes from both participant enjoyment, as well as coordination and structuring of the event as a whole. While I do not plan on completely fixing the system from the start, I do believe that there are some short (and long) term changes that can make the experience better for everyone: ·         We are keeping participation points for this season, as well as the Elo ranking system used for previous seasons. ·         We will have people recruiting more in the game from the community, and attempt to bring more LoL community members to the discord that we feel would be good for the vVv community. ·         We will be implementing new rules for the drafting phase. Some of these rules will be introduced as the season progresses and are covered below. ·         Unfortunately, at this point in time, there is no information regarding a prize. If a viable prize method/opportunity comes about in the future, current season winners will be rewarded retroactively. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Rules and Details (Read if new):          Nights will consist of two matches per night. You must be able to attend both games (Don’t be that guy, play it out).          Be on Discord NO LATER than 8:55pm EST/5:55pm PST for Check In. This will be slowly changed to 8:45pm EST as the season progresses. We want the drafting phase this season to be as smooth as possible.  We want to give people time to announce their roles before hand.           Check in will happen in the ADL Check In Discord Channel BEFORE players move to the regular ADL channel, and at 9:00pm EST people will move to channels matching their Dynamic Queue rank. Missing the check-in deadline means that you will not be able to participate that night and will not receive a participation point.          During the Check In, participants will announce their top 3 preferred roles for a staff member to place in a spreadsheet (Discord does not allow for your descriptions to be changed, that I am aware of).          Have a level 30 account, at least 16 champions, and be ready to have some fun!          Additional Questions? Contact vVv Eternal or vVv Yui        The ADL will last for 10 weeks this season, there will then be a three-week break before the next season starts (Currently scheduled for Nov. 11, 2016).        Cheating or Smurfing in the ADL is not permitted. Anyone caught doing either of these this will be suspended from the ADL, no exceptions. Cheating will result in a permanent suspension, smurfing will result in a 5-week suspension.  New Drafting Process: So, in previous seasons of the ADL, the highest ranked players were given the priority in being team captains for any given night. While this was not a bad system, it did leave some players feeling left out over the course of the season. That being said: ·         Highest ranked players will no longer be automatically chosen as the team captain. ·         Team captains will be chosen by the number of participation points that a player has (you earn 1 point for each night you attend, REGARDLESS of whether or not you are picked). ·         No player can be captain more than once every 4 weeks (depending on overall participation). ·         The first weekend will have captains from an arbitrary division and lower. So here is my logic (bear with me). With some outlying cases, most of the team captains would pick from highest available skill in a role down, until all of the top players (and a few peoples friends) were picked. I don’t expect this to change at all; however, this allows for both new and lower skill level players and community members, as well as frequent participants, to always have a shot at playing. They also get the benefit of knowing (eventually) in advance that they will be captains. Additional Information: I would like to try and address the speed of the drafting process. For now, the primary way of doing this will be the check-in time; however, if another feasible method is suggested, any changes will be updated in this section. After the Games: ·         Players will join the winning team's discord channel, and all players will be given feedback if they desire it. ·         Players may also provide criticism and suggestions for the ADL. (We are still seeking to improve the event if the community desires it) ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- More Darn Rules ·         Teams will still be matched by alphabetical order of Discord channel for the time being. ·         The winner of the first match will play the winner of the second (both matches are played out simultaneously), and the same goes for the losing teams. ·         The higher team alphabetically will be chosen to be on the blue side for the first game, and the lower team will get blue side when the second game is played. Leaving/AFK: If someone leaves a game for any reason and does not reconnect, they will be given a 2-night suspension from the ADL. The player may appeal the suspension with an ADL Staff member if there was a legitimate reason for the disconnect. However, all appeals must happen at least 24 hours before the next ADL event. You also may only appeal a disconnect once per season. Pausing: Players may pause the game for UP TO 10 minutes if a player on their team is having connection issues. PLAYERS MUST INFORM AN ADL STAFF MEMBER IF A GAME IS PAUSED. If the reason cannot be resolved in 10 minutes, the team whose player disconnected will concede the match. If the enemy team agrees, they may also use their 10-minute pause to give the other team more time. Teams only get two pauses per game. Replacement Players: Player replacement will be handled the same as in previous seasons. A player may be replaced by another player of the same rank or lower, provided both teams agree to the replacement. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ So that’s it folks.  Thank you for sticking through the whole announcement, we understand it is somewhat lengthy, however the information had to be provided.  You are now ready for the 10th season of the ADL! If you have any questions feel free to contact vVv Eternal     See you on Friday, August 19th at 8:55pm EST/6:00pm PST!     ADL Staff: vVv Eternal   To join the discussion click here!

      Changes to Community Game Nights   09/13/2016

      Thank you to everyone who participated in week’s survey.  After reviewing responses from the survey sent out to tournament participants the previous week, staff availability, and looking at conflicts with other tournaments, we have decided to make changes to our Wednesday Night Tournaments.  Moving forward, as of Thursday, September 22nd, team tournaments will be hosted on Thursdays as opposed to Wednesdays. We hope with the new schedule, the overall participation will improve, as there will be fewer conflicts between tournaments being hosted.   If you have any further feedback, please leave us a comment in the following thread:  http://www.vvv-gaming.com/forum/topic/72439-supersonic-series-feedback-thread/

  1. Blazek Do you have any thoughts on a sith assasin build, PVE oriented? Started an Alt and don't really see a lot of them though I have had my arse handed to me by them out in game. Thinking Deception at the moment.
  2. Thanks for the info Xeno! Sounds like a plan to me.
  3. Getting ready for endgame

  4. Hey guys, I know that the primary focus of this article was based on PVP but i was wondering: If as you say that a Carnage build could on a target with high HP (flashpoint/operations bosses) possibly do more damage than the annihilation spec, then would you say then that it would be a viable spec for someone who is PVE focused in the end game versus rage? Also initially i was fitting my maruader with crit stat gear ... but after a converstion with lordjerith early on ... replaced all crit with power for a more consistant damage vs burst damage (again it favored PVE as i saw it) What kind of bearing do you think this would have on spec? Or is power the universally agreed on stat for maruaders? http://db.darthhater...0fe2fe4f6ef4df8
  5. Hello everyone, Just doing a little intro before i started poking around and asking questions on everyones posts. Now for some name droping... I was introduced to vVv by Abadman (who i've known since junior high...20 yrs) since i've been waiting for SW:TOR like everyone else for 2 years and since he had nothing but good things to say i thought i'd give it a shot...though previous WoW guild experiances were less than favorable. Few Things: 1. This is my FIRST PVP SERVER (feel free to groan ) PVP NEWB here, you have been warned. 2. I'm Married with full time job and 3 Kids, schedules are good things for me so i'm primarily hoping to contribute to the guild in a PVE capacity (see again PVP server XP) aka raid, operations, daily grinds, bank filler (when they roll out). Though I hope to pick up some PVP knowledge while here. 3. I WELCOME any advice on gear, stats, or any other attibutes that could lend to my character being more effective. I'm currently playing a lvl 48 marauder with a Caranage build (I know Xenocide..i just read your build guide ..wish i had sooner.) I have had no problems with the caranage spec leveling within the PVE realm (i have done 0 warzones), and as blazek pointed out, i am one who actually enjoys playing that spec. But i have had my arse kicked 3 times by level 50 republic equivalent assasins and once, to my shame, a sorceror. 4. 400 on Artifice/Treasure/Archeology...I've read up on the rediculous process of Magneta crystal making and would like to know who is the guildie with the schematic to construct these and i know you have raid schedules but do you have any times set up for world bosses, or Epic material quests such as the one required to secure Schematics and materials for the Magenta crystals. Pretty much SWTOR has taken up my gaming free time for the past few weeks and looks to for the forseeable future so i hope to see you out there and agian welcome any advice/critiques Thanks SW:TOR - KURAIDAEMON lvl 48 Maruader
